clear politics" average of the most recent polling in the state of ohio shows president obama ahead in ohio by 2.3 points. these "real clear politics" averages are an imperfect measure. i want to give you a very rough idea of how basically how close it is right now. that's what it is in ohio. in virginia, that same polling average has mitt romney ahead by 0.5 points, and in north carolina, the polling average has mr. romney ahead by 3.8 points. so that's the 7:00 hour. and then in the 8:00 hour, polls will be closing in these 18 states. of these states, again, there will be three that we're going to be watching most closely. florida, pennsylvania, and new hampshire. the "real clear politics" polling average right now in florida has romney ahead. in pennsylvania the polling average says it is president obama who's ahead by 4.6 points. in new hampshire, again, president obama ahead with a 1.3 lead. that's the 8:00 hour. at 9:00, we'll have polls closed in all those places, and the blinking states here will be the ones that are closing. 14 states mostly in the midwest and the south. of

showed in iowa, president obama has a lead. in wisconsin, it's a smaller lead. some other public polls suggest that as well. however, the romney campaign has made it adamantly clear that according to their polls in iowa, the race is dead even. so it really kind of matters where you actually see the race right now. but it's largely going to come down, as chuck pointed out, to the midwest and that's why you'll see president obama campaigning in ohio, wisconsin, iowa a lot these last five days. >> amy, let me bring you in. i know to mark's point, i believe it was one of the romney advisers or a supporter who said i think the word was "crap" when it comes to polls, at least the ones they didn't like to see. nevertheless, you can disagree with the percentage point here or there, but we've not seen a poll where governor romney is leading in a battleground state. >> no, we haven't. but he feels really good about florida. his team does. i don't think it's a double-digit lead, but they're feeling good about florida. they're feeling good about wisconsin. they think the apparatus in place from th
, the ohio public polls show that, yes, president obama is leading. he lost a little bit of ground, but he's made that back up again. one thing i would point out, chris, is that the obama campaign is seeing very different internal polling than the republicomney campaign is s is. republicans told me earlier this week that last week, their polls showed mitt romney up four to five points in ohio. by monday, mitt romney was leading president obama in these ohio republican internal polls by just one point. they've seen his numbers go down. the obama campaign tells me that he's consistently led two to four points in their internal polling. you might say it's spin, but these two campaigns are seeing very different data. >> do you trust these people that are giving you these numbers? are they just giving you numbers, or do you really believe them? which of these people are the most credible when it comes to numbers when you match them up against other evidence? >> one of the things that the romney campaign was suggesting, just about an hour ago on a conference call that they had, the romney pollst

there have been seven polls. all of them have suggested that mr. obama is up within the margin of error by a couple of points on mitt romney. most scenarios, romney can't win without winning here in florida as well as without ohio. so, one of the schools of thought is that the romney camp is trying to hedge against a possible defeat in ohio by expanding the battlefield or trying to into those three blue states. the obama campaign isn't buying it. as we head into the final six days it's very clear it's going to go right down to the wire with anybody's guess in some of the battleground states in the quest for 270 electoral votes. national polls s. tied as is some of those battleground states even with the margin of error. shep? >> shepard: carl cammeron in jacksonville florida tonight. little relief for air travelers coming in and out of the nation's airspace after sandy. earlier today two of new york's airports reopened on a limited basis. jfk and newark liberty international across the river in jersey. port authority which runs all the airports is urging folks to call airlines for infor

? the reality of history of polls is most of the time with a candidate with a lead as clear as obama has in ohio or wisconsin or invest 23nevada, t candidate wins and this is a reality. often thinking that the polls are close they often still end up going the way they're leaning. remember in wisconsin earlier, democrats thought this is going to be a close race. the polls said walker would win by 7. he did. and with that history in mind, you know, i'm inclined to think that obama's the favorite. that doesn't mean romney can't win but speaks to probability i think. >> don't let toure say you don't have passion. i can feel your passion. i can feel it through the camera. is minnesota in play? i've been hearing silly rumors it could be in play this year for romney. that doesn't sound right. >> i have always thought that minnesota should be in play. it's an overwhelmingly white state. we know that obama's struggling with white voters. a state obama won by ten points last time and keep in mind that means it's closer than wisconsin, pennsylvania, closer than a whole bunch and closer than nevada, states

has a big, really big, advantage over obama, double digits in a lot of these polls. and they're saying so there's a mistake in these polls. there's too many democrats and we're all in for a big surprise tuesday. i think that's knocked down by the fact that independents are a broad and seemingly confused term, a lot of people that used to call themselves republicans to pollsters have simply calling themselves independents, but they still act and vote like republicans. so if the independent thing isn't what republicans say it is, from your view, what is the best argument at this point for romney suddenly getting that extra push over the last four, five days of this race and winning next tuesday? what's the strongest argument you've heard? >> well, i don't think there is a good argument for him getting a kind of issue push, a kind of free media narrative push. i think at this point, it's that the turnout assumptions that a lot of pollsters are making are wrong. and that republican -- optimistic republican projections about what the electorate are going to look like are more accurate than

reading of the polls is the last week had already been going at least slightly in obama's direction. and at least on the first couple of days, from the reaction to what the president did, from the difficulties romney has, this appears to be helping obama some more. and as long as polling stations can open up in places like philadelphia and in northern virginia, then the storm, i think, because he responded well, will end up helping obama more than it hurts him. >> e.j. dionne, always good to have you with us on "the ed show." thanks so much. the romney camp says they'll win next tuesday. the latest poll numbers, folks, they tell just a different story. bob shrum weighs in next. >>> later, it's been three weeks, count 'em, three weeks since mitt romney the candidate actually took a question from reporters? >>> and hurricane sandy is highlighting his transparency problems. dnc chair debbie wasserman schultz is here with reaction tonight. stay with us. brp b >>> thanks for joining us tonight. now, to hear the romney campaign tell the story they're preparing for certain victory on elect
, because, it just doesn't exist with this guy. the latest ohio poll shows romney trailing president obama badly on whether the candidate cares about the needs of people like you. president obama also leads on who is better at helping the middle class. president obama also leads romney by five points in ohio, in large part because romney's 47% problems just continue to haunt him. it is halloween, isn't it? let's bring in msnbc contributor, e.j. dionne, who is also a "washington post" columnist and author of the book, "our divided political heart." you know, this storm, as devastating as it is, e.j., it seems to have created some real problems for the romney campaign. it's almost as if you see them, and they are thing, and you can see them thinking out loud, oh, no, now what do we do? staging events. i mean, how low does it get? your thoughts? >> well, first of all, i would like to send my love out to my wife's family in rockaway queens, the neighborhood right on the ocean that got hammered. it's a great area and those folks are having a tough time right now. and i think this storm presente
the average poll has obama up by 2, 2 1/2, 3 points in ohio. you go back through history, how candidates overcome leads like, that it's actually pretty hard. a small lead, but when you have so few undecided voters left, a third of the state already voted and turned out, it's pretty challenging right now and that's romney's biggest hurdle, entirely ohio. >> you've been described as a potential one-term celebrity pollster. how did you react? you are a bit of a rising superstar. but of course if you get it wrong you've got obama 75% chance of winning. if he was to lose now, lu resign? what happens to pollster experts like you? >> well, this is why we give probabilities. earlier this week there was a weather forecast lower said there was a 30% chance that hurricane sandy would be bad enough to flood the new york subway system. now, to me that seems look a very prescient prediction where he warned people days in advance there was a chance of this occurring. we give mitt romney a 38% chance of becoming president as new york this week. . a 30% chance will come up quite a bit. i think some of th
street journal"/nbc marist poll shows romney withor rather, obama with a six-point lead in iowa, a three-point lead in wisconsin and a two-point lead in pelonew hampshire. 78% of likely voters approve of his response while 44% view romney's reaction favorably. neither is speaking to politicize the tragedy. how could it affect the race? could it affect the race. >> in many ways it has. look, president obama in this time of tragedy has been able to really step into the role as commander in chief and as the leader in chief and in many ways one of mitt romney's top surrogates has provided an incredible amount of cover, that is the new jersey governor chris christie. president obama was up there. let's listen what christi had to say about the president and what the president had to say about the new jersey governor. >> i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and the people of our state and heard it on the phone conversations with him but i was able to witness it today personally. >> i think the people of new jersey recognize that he has put hi
washington. tracie, good morning. >> reporter: lynn, good morning. the latest poll of the battleground states show a slight advantage for president obama, ahead by 6 in iowa, three in wisconsin, and just two, well within the margin of error in new hampshire. but this week he's really been focused on new jersey, touring the storm damage there with governor chris christie, a republican rival who has said repeatedly the president's done a great job responding to the storm. analysts say the president could be scoring some political points from that endorsement only from governor chris christie. meanwhile, governor romney making three campaign stops yesterday. today he'll focus on virginia. in florida he toned down his message. he didn't even mention president obama as he spoke to voters in jacksonville last night and said he was criticizing the administration's record on small business. governor ejeb bush did talk abot the president and talked about some of his failures, as he put it, in office. meantime, we're looking at early voting resumed here in d.c. and maryland, but up in the flood ravaged
